Lydia Louisa has become the fourth person to be evicted from the Big Brother house, after losing out to Deana in this week’s public vote.
The dancer had been the bookies’ favourite to get the boot, and her fate was sealed after she received fewer votes than Deana, who the public decided they wanted to save.
However Lydia – whose name was being chanted by the crowd outside as the person they wanted out of the house – appeared resigned to her fate, and delighted that she would be reunited with her fiance, former pop star Andy Scott-Lee.
“It’s OK, it’s OK, I’m so happy to see him,” she told the others. “Honestly I literally can’t wait to see him.”
And afterwards – having left the house to a chorus of boos from the crowd – she said she was glad to be out.
“I don’t want to speculate but I got saved once and I was chuffed with that,” the 25-year-old said.
“I could have been gone so early on but I lasted a month. I am happy to be out, I was having a really hard time in there this week.”
Lydia added she had found it difficult to relax in the house, saying, “You can’t be your real self in there because things are so intense. You can’t behave as you would on the outside.”
And she admitted that while she “couldn’t stop thinking” about Andy Scott-Lee during her time in the house, she did not want to be seen as “being in his shadow” – hence the reason she had kept his identity a secret.
Her departure follows those of previous evictees Victoria Eisermann, Chris James and Benedict Garrett – with the housemates due to nominate again on Monday.
